2014 Volkswagen Golf R 400 concept.

The Golf R 400 is powered by a 2.0 TSI engine whose technical genes stem from the Polo WRC racing engine. This motor propels the concept car to super sports car territory: From standstill to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds, top speed 280 km/h.

The maximum torque of 450 Newton metres is available in the range between 2,400 and 6,000 rpm. An automatic 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG), which can also be controlled via gear shift lever or shift-paddles at the steering wheel, transmits the power to the 4MOTION permanent four-wheel drive system.

The exterior was also completely redesigned, featuring significantly wider wings as a modern interpretation of the legendary Golf G60 rally car. Detailed perfection is also displayed by the front section, the front and rear bumpers and many other parts made of visible carbon fibre, similar to race cars.

In the interior, on the other hand, the exclusive character of the Golf R400 is rounded off by Alcantara and racing seats covered with "carbon leather".

It's pretty Obvious what the Volkswagen logo is (a V over a W in a blue background, sorounded by a circle). It's origin is rather mundane though. The logo was the result of an office competition to see come up with a logo. The winner of the competition (who won 50 Marks for his troubles) was an engineer named Franz Reimspiess (the same man who perfected the engine for the Beetle in the 1930's).
